Festival of Music (June 2016)

Mostly Mozart

Featuring Performances by The Choir of All Souls, The Capital Hearings, and the Woodley Park String Quartet!

Volunteer Opportunities

Each summer, the music ministry at All Souls Parish provides a month long festival of music to our community. This year's festival begins on Sunday morning, June 5, at 10:45 a.m. with an extended prelude to our 11 a.m. High Mass. Each week, the ordinary of the 11 a.m. Mass will be sung by the choir using music provided us by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and performed by the Choir of All Souls and String Ensemble. Evenings will feature a social on the patio, concert in the undercroft, and candlelight compline. Compline is a candlelit service of music and prayers, based on the liturgy used for centuries by monastic communities to end the day.

If you would like more information, are interested in singing, or would like to make a donation to support this festival, please contact Benjamin Hutchens, Director of Music.

All Souls Parish is an example of the Episcopal Church at its best. We are catholic in our worship (looking, sounding, and even smelling very much like our Roman Catholic friends), but we are progressive in our thinking (questioning, studying, and wrestling with scripture, tradition, and issues of the day). Though we worship with care and dignity, we always try to keep our sense of humor.

it doesn't matter to us whether you've never been to church before, have been away for a while, or might be a longtime Episcopalian. It doesn't matter to us that you might be from another faith altogether, or might simply be seeking a place of peace. All Souls are Welcome.
